Raise the brake up 5 clicks and raise up the car and put it on jack stands. Find the threaded rod that houses the parking brake cable under the vehicle and adjust it until the rear tires do not spin..

The emergency brake cable is connected to the brake shoe on the rear brakes. You can adjust the emergency brake by loosening or tightening the nut on the end of the cable.

What if you've checked your brakes and they are fine. My e-brake cable is stretched out and no adjuster is anywhere to be found. Is there an adjuster for a 2002 cavalier? before you think about adjusting your e-brake cable, you may want to inspect or have your rear brakes inspected. most of the time the e-brake cable will not need adjusting and the problem lies in excessive wear on your rear drum brakes. the e-brake functions by mechanically engaging your brakes (as opposed to hydraulic actuation from your braking system) in the rear. if they are too far worn, the cable pull created by your e-brake lever will not fully engage or may sometimes not at all engage your rear brakes. you could tighten the cable, but you would need to readjust when you had the rear brake shoes replaced. check your brake wear first. if that doesn't solve your problem, then adjust the e-brake.

you must first adjust the rear drum brakes. then and only then can you adjust the cable for the parking brake at the base of the park brake pedal/handle. if you don't do the rear drums first, you will stretch the cable

You can remove the parking brake lever, from the brake shoe on your Chevrolet Cavalier, by removing the retaining clip. The retaining clip connects the brake lever cable to the brake shoe.

its a self adjusting brake. put parking brake where you want it and put in reverse back up to adjust.

You don't normally adjust in the brake drum. There is usually an adjuster about halfway to the back, under the driver side. This is an oblong metal frame where the front cable joins the cable to the rear splitter. You tighten a nut in this box to adjust length of cable.

If it has a cable attached to the throtle linkage, release it by moving the locking tang and pulling the cable all the way to the rear. Then get inside and floor the accelerator and it will automatically adjust the cable.

In the center arm rest is a cover at the bottom that can be removed to expose the emergency brake cable, and a nut to adjust the tension.

you can start by removing the tires and the rotors. then look on the lower half of the e brake ring. there should be a circular locking key. turn it clockwise. or look under your driver door and there is the brake cable they can be adjusted by turning the cable nut clockwise a few times.

To adjust the cable, pull up the cable release at the rear of the throtle body and move the cable all the way to the rear, Then get inside the car and mash the accelerator all the way to the floor. This should adjust it.
